Playbill is a news feed with a bit of content (of varying quality) thrown in to make it seem otherwise. To expect judgment, even mid-week in a holiday week, is unreasonable. Like many news feeds it is organized chronologically so older important stories get buried by unimportant newer ones. The fact is that, for anyone with more than a passing interest, social media is where breaking news is obtained. Nothing makes this clearer than the fact that the only important news on this subject has been reported via Andy Karl's social media, and most other news on this originated on social media. Finally, and in this context, my assumption is that the schedule remains as it was and since no press release was put out (and no intrepid reporter anywhere has reported otherwise except one out of town rumor) Playbill had nothing to update even if it were paying attention over the holiday weekend that is more about cute little mammals that hop rather than rodents.
